Sinemaes: Memory Lanes - Rural Wales on Film

Eisteddfod Maes, Abergavenny
Eisteddfod website


‘Weren’t they good old days? In this selection of films from the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales collection, we catch a rare glimpse of the characters and communities of 20th century Wales. From rural and village life to community celebration, from the fun of the fair to the buzz of the ‘Eisteddfod’, we discover that life in the old days was not black and white at all, and that Welsh cameras from Anglesey to Monmouthshire captured aspects of life that were untouched by the newsreels or Hollywood!’


Duration: 90 minutes
